I know many people who are always looking for that fresh just out of the wash clean smell. You will achieve it with this, guaranteed. It does have an overpowering smell so take note - I don't recommend you leave under your pillow and sleep as suggested. I do recommend you pop this sachet in laundry baskets and in linen wardrobes (where you keep your towels for example) And your towels and clothes will be '' touched '' by the smell and mission accomplished. I dropped one star because it would have been nice to have something a little less strong that you could pop under your pillow. It's strong though - I left the sachet in my bedroom, came home from work and my bedroom pleasantly smelled like i'd been washing clothes in it all day. If you have very sensitive allergies I would recommend something else.
